I have a fear of heights. I’m also uncomfortable in small spaces. I’ve had dreams about dying on the ocean. These are not unusual phobias, but did you know there is a fear of going to bed? Some people are threatened by the number 8. There is a fear of going to the zoo! There are phobias for hundreds of other things too.
We all suffer from this malady called fear. It’s part of our human nature. Many seek psychiatric help for relief. Some try to overcome fear by doing just the thing they are afraid of in order to overcome it. Others believe they can think their fears away. Some folks are overcome by their fears and live in fear of their fears happening at any moment. What a desperate situation to be in. These fears can be so real, they become a way of life for some.
